Unfettered Adornment - Indigo Necklace
Unfettered focuses on creating wearable pieces using high quality materials and quality craftsmanship. Designer Kirra Lien grew up in Seattle, born to a family of entrepreneurs and artists. She started making jewelry as a young teen, while spending time with her jeweler grandmother. Kirra’s work is influenced by personal philosophies, and the incredible traditional metalcrafts of cultures from around the world. Concepts that frequently inform her work are the balance of feminine/masculine and light/dark - how these energies contrast, play together, and ultimately find harmony. Her pieces intend to connect the wearer with their own alive body and spirit. Kirra has an extensive background in dance and the performing arts, and her flair for drama and expression comes through in her metal designs.
Undulating silver encases a natural nugget of azurite. Azurite is an incredible stone! Reminiscent of lapis lazuli due to its color, these particular specimens from Morocco are a deeper and darker blue, like the night sky.
This pendant hangs from a sterling silver 18" rounded box-chain.
Azurite is a soft stone. Treat it kindly. Keep your earrings out of water, and out of direct sunlight for long periods of time, which can fade the blue of the azurite stones. Remove your necklace before entering the shower, ocean, pool, steam-room, bath, etc; and before exercise activities. Tarnishing of silver can occur over time. Further oxidation can occur (we like this, as it adds to the character and charm of the piece) - but you can always gently shine up your item with a soft jewellery polishing cloth. Store this necklace in a cool, dry place when not being worn. We recommend storing it in a plastic zip bag to protect it from air and moisture.
